Our 2003 Mirassou California Merlot displays luscious fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry. These primary flavors are augmented with secondary flavors of vanilla, toasty oak and spices including clove and nutmeg. The addition of complementary varietals contributes to a velvety mouth feel and lingering, smooth finish. This wine is at its best if enjoyed within a year of release, but should be able to age in the bottle for up to three years.
Displaying fresh fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry, balanced with elegant toasty aromas and hints of spice, Mirassou California Merlot is a bright expression of California's most celebrated growing regions.
